Cape of Good Hope

The sign at the Cape of Good Hope.

The Cape of Good Hope has been on our must see list for years.  It was well worth the wait.  The scenery was wild, gorgeous and stunning.  My pictures do not do it justice, but I am posting them anyway.  We arrived at the park early, and had the cape viewpoint all to ourselves.

We also were very lucky in that we ran into a troop of baboons at Maclear Beach, just prior to reaching the actual Cape.  The scenery was breathtaking, the waves were large and wild.

Big waves along the coast.

This is part of the trail up to a viewpoint above the Cape.

We found the actual Cape very unspoiled, but the lighthouse area was full of tour buses.  We walked up to the lighthouse and then had lunch at the Two Oceans Restaurant.  The view was spectacular and the food was too.

We did some beach combing and some roadside shopping on the way back to Simon’s Town.
